JMW’s Expertise

JMW deal with data leak cases on a day to day basis.

We have been involved in many high profile data privacy cases and helped victims of data leaks to recover substantial damages and secure other legal remedies.

For example, JMW are currently acting on behalf of over 5500 past and present employees of the retailer Morrisons whose data was stolen by a former colleague (and who was later jailed for the crime).  The employees’ claim is due to go to trial this year.

Is there an upfront cost?

No.  In the case of serious data leak incidents, JMW will look at 'No Win, No Fee' arrangements and consider other funding options.
